September is Charcot-Marie-Tooth Awareness Month in Maine
 
What is Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT)?
  • It is the most common type of inherited peripheral neuropathy that results in a progressing loss of muscle tissue and touch sensation in the arms and legs
  • It can vary greatly in severity, even within the same family
  • It affects nearly 2.6 million people worldwide, including several men and women here in Maine
  • There is no known cure, although physical therapy, occupational therapy, and moderate physical activity is beneficial
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth is named after three physicians who were the first to describe it back in 1886
If you're looking for an outdoor activity with a view, register for the 5k walk happening on Peaks Island, Sunday 9/21.  The walk starts at 2:45PM outside the Inn on Peaks, just off the ferry landing.  After the walk, participants will be invited to a light reception where there will be a silent auction and naming of the mascot.  For more information about CMT or to register for the walk and activities on Peaks Island, Sunday, September 21st, click on the links below.

This being the anniversary of 9/11, I would like to ask everyone to take one second... just one second.... and think about the 400 first responders that the country lost that day... 
If we all take just one extra second just before attempting to do anything that we know is risky; and could end badly for us, maybe a percentage of us will decide that the risks don't outweigh the gains, and take another course of action..

I personally can picture a rather large crowd of first responders smiling somewhere!!!!

City of Portland to Offer Seven Flu Vaccine Clinics This Fall
PORTLAND, Maine -- The City of Portland, Health and Human Services Department’s Public Health Division will be holding seven seasonal flu vaccination clinics starting October 8, 2014. The full clinic schedule is listed below and available online here. Seasonal flu vaccine will be available for $15, or at no cost for individuals with a Medicare Part B card and supplemental insurance (if applicable) The City also accepts private insurance.
Pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine will be covered by Medicare or available for $87. Tetanus/Pertussis vaccine (TdAP) will be offered for $50. The clinics are open to adults, eighteen and older.
The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated annually. This year the City will be supplying quadrivalent vaccine at all the clinics. This vaccine protects against four strains of influenza (one more strain than last year’s vaccine). Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Vaccinations reduce health care costs by limiting expensive therapies and unnecessary hospitalizations and decrease the spread of disease in the home, workplace, and community. Getting the flu shot is something you can do for your health and for the health of others.
It should be noted that this year’s vaccination for the seasonal flu is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Groups at especially high risk of either contracting seasonal influenza and/or developing its complications include:
§ People People over age 50;
§ People with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, or immune system problems;
§ Pregnant women;
§ People in long-term care or institutional settings;
§ Health care workers;
§ Caregivers and household contacts of those at high risk; and
§ Young children aged 6 months and up.
For specific information on the locations and dates for Portland Public Health’s flu clinics, please contact the City of Portland’s Flu Hotline at 207-874-8946 or visit the Immunization Program website.

Several Islanders have been trying to come down to pick up/drop off freight and/or passengers while the ferry is off loading/loading. It is no secret that there is limited space at the end of Welch St at the dock and no vehicle traffic is allowed past the traffic circle while the ferry is docked. One warning will be issued to violators and citations will follow suit as needed-save your neighbors and/or visitors the difficulty and pass it on.

Do not leave your car unattended in the car ferry line. If you are not with your vehicle when the line moves you will NOT keep your place in line-the line will move around you and you will have a parking ticket. Parking in the Welch St lot is limited. If you are going on vacation or leaving your car for more than 72 hrs remember to park on a side street to avoid a ticket.
